"We have more than 20 of Marriott hotels coming up in the course of the next 3 years. In Chennai, we are opening a 600-room JW brand hotel in the first quarter of 2010, in MRC Nagar. End of 2008 will see a Courtyard coming up in Gurgaon, the second one in India. The third Courtyard will be in Pune. How has Courtyard been received by the Indian market? Really well, because the guests enjoy value-for-money in the mid-tier segment which is what Courtyards target."
